We believe that music should be fun and entertaining, not merely proficient (after all, why do you think we call it ‘playing’ music?). We guarantee not to play polite cocktail jazz, whilst reading diligently from a Real Book and looking bored out of our trees. Passion and intensity, without blowing your head off!!
The band playlist includes classics by Miles Davis (All Blues, Freddie Freeloader), Herbie Hancock (Watermelon Man), standards such as Summertime and My Funny Valentine, a number of Latin-flavoured tunes (like Horace Silver’s Song for My Father and Chitlins Con Carne by Kenny Burrell), plus a smattering of original material, and classic pop/rock tunes given a jazz twist (for example Money by Pink Floyd).
